Workshop or Residency
Mr. Ollie makes it easy for students to create their own cartoons by combining simple geometric shapes anyone can draw. Students create their own cartoon subjects and refine their appearance and personalities through multiple pencil sketches before finishing them with india ink, chalk, and oil pastels. Their unique cartoon characters can be displayed, published, or used to storyboard their very own animated series.
*Duration: 55 minute Workshop; 3-5 day Residency
